The Downtown Massillon Association

The Downtown Massillon Association, also known as the DMA, is an organization that strives to  encourage growth in its member businesses primarily through events and promotions.

The DMA sponsors events such as The FunFest, The Massillon Tiger Football Pep Rally, Holly Days with Santa’s Cottage, and we co-sponsor with Massillon Main Street for the Holiday Parade.

We work with Massillon Main Street and Massillon Area Chamber of Commerce for giving back to the community by donating our time to community organizations.

Our organization invites downtown Massillon area businesses to join and help with the promotions and fun times during the year, promoting their own businesses as well as helping to spread the community spirit throughout the downtown area.
